We had a lovely meal in this very natural relaxed styled restaurant. The waitress was helpful in explaining the menu in English. The food was really healthy but absolutely delicious. If you want a healthy natural feast head here

properly prepared and with excellent raw ingredients. We had local cheese and salami, a superb fish soup and two portions of bacalau. Enough to make our stomach happy. Food tasty, but light. Personnel friendly and informative on the menu. We had our meal at the table by the bow-window and the sight of the placa was just beautiful.

Couldn't get into this place because it was so busy overtime we went passed. Eventually got a table on our third visit and was not disappointed. My wife who is generally a bit funny about new food attacked her plate of chicken and bubble and squeak like a starving woman leaving a clean plate. My pheasant salad and braised stuffed... More

We had a hard time finding this place, wandering via google maps. Just pop in a bakery or random shop (not a competing restaurant, that'd be rude) on the main drag and ask where it is. It's worth the search

It was rainy and we were hungry. Just happened to pass by this restaurant, took a peak at the menu and the ambience and decided to try it out. What a pleasant surprise! As others have commented, the menu is rather overpowering; extensive offerings with preparation options for vegetarians. After a good 20 minutes reading and studying the encyclopedia of... More

We visited Origen in the beginning of August 2014 and were lucky to get a table as we did not have a chance to make a reservation. The restaurant was very cozy and we found the service to attentive as well. The menu was packed full of information and made the ordering process to be a bit of challenge. All... More

We enjoyed the food here very much. There are 4 Origens in Barcelona. We had the duck dish and the stuffed eggplant for lunch - excellent. Great concept.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
